CLEVELAND — Lowe’s, the home improvement retailer, announced that it’s hiring more than 50,000 workers this spring at stores across the country, including in Northeast Ohio.

The company announced it will pay out an additional $80 million in discretionary bonuses and plans to existing workers while still hiring additional associates this spring.

Active hourly associates at U.S. stores, distribution centers and call centers will receive the bonus on Feb. 5 in recognition of their continued dedication working throughout the pandemic.

Full-time hourly associates will receive $300, and part-time and seasonal associates will receive $150. This will be the seventh bonus or special payment Lowe's has provided to hourly associates during the pandemic.

"As we approach spring, I am enormously proud of the way our associates have served customers and supported each other this past year through an unprecedented health crisis," said Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe's president and CEO, in a statement. "We are honored to be an essential business to help our customers keep their homes safe and functional during these very challenging times. We're pleased to provide this additional bonus to support our current associates and excited to welcome these new associates so we can better serve customers across the country."
